Cindy van Rees


Every sustainable story
deserves to be seen.

I make yours visible.


Sustainable documentary photographer and graphic designer whose work is always focused on either ecological or social sustainability.

As a photographer and designer mainly focusing on the sustainable realm, work varies from photography for sustainable businesses, organisations and initiatives, documentary photography projects such as researching the social impact of fair trade in Nepal and graphic design as a means of telling a story to several self-initiated projects within the sustainable sector that aim to inspire and motivate people to live more sustainable and have a greater understanding of the world around them. Always looking for the sustainable or ethical story behind a subject, brand or product.

Works internationally, but currently based in Haarlem, the Netherlands.

‘I strive to be a designer and photographer who takes her responsibilities. I want to use my knowledge and skills in order to create positive influences and contribute to a better world.’
